Totally second this. The thickness of the earlobe and the size of it would affect how huge the studs look. I suppose it's the earring equivalent of finger size & ring coverage?

My .50 each studs were in for repair and I bought a pair of CZ's to wear. They were .75 ct each and I thought they were way too big. They drooped and I had to use ear nuts along with the earring backs to keep them pointed out. I'm really happy that mine are smaller. I wear them every day and also into night.

I agree with what chicmom said about how diamond studs kind of make you a little more polished and put together and they kind of dress up a very causal outfit.
Hi I just ordered my earrings today but will take 2 weeks to get made up. I ordered same as you, 2.5 ctw (so 1.25ct each earring). Can you post a pic of yours to see them on? I'm hoping I'll be happy with the size. I've asked for a martini setting but I'm debating if I the basket set makes them maybe look bigger again!!! I hate being so indecisive sometimes lol

I want a pair of diamond studs. Cant decide how big they should be. I am 5'7, medium built. how big is too big? I have quite a few pairs of diamond earrings but just not classic studs. suggestions?I have a nickel allergy so a lot of the jewelers are off limits unless it is platinum.

i think the size of the studs really depends on the size of your earlobes. just like engagement rings, the same carat diamond can look really different on a size 3 finger vs. a size 7. i think you should try them on and see which carat weight for your ears will work best.

I finally got my earrings :)
I was so excited and just wanted to post my pic of them to share. In the end I had upgraded again just slightly. So they are a 2.60 tcw. I'm not sure I'm 100% keen on the martini set. But for now this will do & I still can't help but admire them. I guess if it bothers me I can always change the setting to the other 1 I wanted!!! :s

They look gorgeous!!!
Martinis are best IMO at this size due to dropping/hanging issues w/ a basket since they would sit up off your ear more.
Enjoy!

I agree...also more light saturation/sparkle! Not as much metal as with a basket setting.
Also try elephant backs (ex-large backs) too. I have them with my studs/martini setting...the earring really sits well on the ear.

Current size is 0.30 carat each ear. Would love to upgrade to at least 0.50 - 0.75 carat each ear.
